Abstract : A low-intensity peak has been found at 1010 + or 30 keV in te gamma-ray spectrum of 2.4-minute 108Ag obtained with NaI scintillation spectrometers. Consideration of the source-to-crystal distance as well as the effects of absorbers and decay time shows that it is the full-energy peak of a 1010 + or - 30 keV gamma ray emitted by 108Ag. Gamma-gamma coincidence studies indicate that this gamma transition occurs between a new level at 1433 + or - 30 and the 433-keV level of 108Pd. (Author)
